We have just returned from a few relaxing days in Rye. As many of you may know, we have been going to England since 2002. Since I can no longer fly even several times a year. We usually go to Sussex or Hampshire, but Somerset also has our preference.
Last week was the only week that Gerben could get some time of his work. And what a great weather we had. Unbelievable for February. We spend all of our days outside!
What means Rye for me
I have to say very honestly that I can imagine that this post is not at all interesting for you. I mean, the photos get me back to the UK, but they are not spectacular for you. But you should know that I would like to live there. As soon as we get off the boat I am bouncing in the car and the only thing I can say for the first five minutes is: finally home, finally home, my beloved England etc. etc. Every time again! So this post is more for myself, to remind me how wonderful it was. Haha, do not drop out now!
We left early on Sunday. Because it is four hours drive to the boat and because it would be busy in Calais that day. Well we drove half an hour shorter and we could even take a boat earlier. In England we first drove past Dymchurch. There, a young woman from Arnhem (Arnhem is a town in the Netherlands where I was born and live near) has a fish & chips shop and we had a small gift for her. Then we drove to Rye to Glencoe Farm. A fabulous B&B. Bert and Carol are such hospitable people and the environment is beautiful. And Bert has great stories to tell. I now know a lot more about Paul McCartney!!
What did we do in Rye
We did not do anything special, at least not something new. We sat on the beach, went to Leeds castle and enjoyed the gardens there, shopped in Lewes where I, yes, bought a DvF dress in the right size! And a very special ring in an antique shop. We went to the rare breed center, we were the only ones without children, but we just like it there. And we have enjoyed scallops in The Standard inn. A great pub in Rye.
We had a fantastic time and I can’t wait to visit the UK again! Hopefully I can meet up with some British bloggers again then!
My favorite of last week is: Alicia of BetweenthePearls
